The 2020-21 Budget Program starts soon. Some customers prefer to pay for their propane as they go, having to make a payment every time they receive a delivery, but a majority of our neighbors prefer to enroll in the Co-Alliance Budget program for peace of mind when it comes to their heating costs.

What is the Co-Alliance Propane Budget program?

The Co-Alliance Propane Budget program is a great way for you to manage your heating costs. Based on your estimated gallon usage, and type of account, we’ll lock in your monthly price for the whole season. Co-Alliance Propane customers enrolled in the Budget program enjoy locked-in winter pricing, summer-fill discounts, and auto fill (we monitor your tank so you’ll never run out). There is no fee to join the program and no hidden costs. The Budget program auto-renews but you are free to opt out at any time. 

This year we’re offering two payment options for budget contracts in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.  One option begins in July with eleven payments monthly payments, the other begins in September and consists of nine payments.

Option 1 (11-Month Payment Plan)
This option consists of eleven equal monthly payments from July of 2020 to May of 2021 and has been the standard payment plan for Co-Alliance Propane Budget program customers until this year.
Example: If your annual propane budget payment expense is $1,000 your monthly payment under this plan would be $91 a month.

Option 2 (9-Month Payment Plan)
This option breaks your budget payments into nine equal payments due once a month beginning September 2020 through May 2021. These payments are slightly higher due to the reduced number of payments, but the later start date allows for flexibility in financial planning.
Example: If your annual propane expense is $1,000. Under this 9-month plan you would pay $111 a month.
